"Ello you! Well here we are - t'is true. Thank you for defending me on MA after I was trounced off. It was deeply appreciated - as I could not defend myself of course. I'm surprised you were not issued a sterling invite as it seems by invitation only now. Mind, if one is invited to stay - and is THEN trounced off - I can really see the fur flying ! Intimating that you were the cause of their decision in any manner ( I slogged through the whole C&C thread last night - Lord what a confusion) would be just - outrageous. You were the epitome of balance and common sense and reasonability.
You sound like a Coloradan at heart! From what I have heard, Alaska is pretty cool too! I am thinking about taking a trip up there this summer. Any recommendations? Your comment in how people converse was very thoughtful. Thank you.
Thank you for bestowing upon me the honour of your friendship. Thank you for your kind and generous words in support of my beloved Diana. May good health and good fortune follow you in your endeavours!!!
Apposite, given you liking for clarification and understanding perhaps you might find this book on physics (from both a western and eastern perspective ) intriguing and informative: The Dancing Wu Li Masters by Gary Zukav .
As far as TQ/A - Steve is rude. Often. It's his gig. It makes him happy. He picked the wrong target t'is all. I smack back ten fold if necessary - I'm fundamentally much more British than American and I don't suffer stupidity and (repeatedly) rude fools lightly. Most of the discussions after the initial get go - go around in spiraling downward circles and often times more than one person is busy eating their tail in delirious self-absorption. It becomes boring quickly.
Life is difficult enough. If my dry sense of humour - often intellectually based is not appreciated, I'm quite capable of taking it somewhere else where it might be better received.
